SECOND FARM AND GARDEN TOUR
The Oakham Historical Association is sponsoring the “Second
Oakham Farm and Garden Tour” on Saturday, July 15, 2017, 10 am—
4 pm, rain or shine. $12 per person advance registration; $15 per
person on day of the event.
Last held in July 2012, this year’s self-guided tour will include a great
mix of home gardens, small family-owned agricultural farms, two
farms featuring animal husbandry and, for the first time, Oakham’s
own vineyard with optional tastings. Something of interest to all!
The vineyard will offer two free guided tours, 11:00am and 2:00pm.
The tours, 30 to 45 minutes long, will include the wine production
process. People are welcome to enjoy the grounds throughout the
day and can purchase wine, do a tasting or enjoy a glass at the
winery. Tastings are $7 and include a souvenir glass to take home.
People may register in advance in person at the Fobes Memorial
Library with cash or check payable to Oakham Historical Museum
(keep in mind that the library is closed on Mondays and Fridays).
People may also register in advance by contacting Edie at 508-223-

On the day of the tour, sign in and pick up a map and ticket at the
gazebo on the town common from 9:45am to 1:00pm. After 1:00pm,
maps and tickets will be available at the Oakham Historical Museum,
